TB3 Firmware Update Tool

TB3 WHQL Driver

So do I need them all, just the Hot Fix?, Just the Firmware update and either the Intel or WHQL driver? Is there a procedure for getting everything updated? I assume there are ZERO instructions from Asus, as usual when it come to these TB add in cards. The info you have provided is really appreciated. Thanks !

You should only need two files, the Hotfix Version and the Firmware update tool Version

If you already have the card installed with the original Version and possibly Version drivers you should be able to just run the Firmware update tool, then install the new driver.

I was unable to test it though. The TB3 card that came with my Deluxe II board stopped working and would not let me install the Firmware update. So I had to send it in for an RMA.

I did purchase a new TB3 card, but it came with the new firmware so all I did was install the new driver (over the old one, I did not even uninstall it) and it worked without having to go through all the steps in the first post. So the new driver looks like it has been written correctly, and we will not need to jump through hoops to get it working.
